Lane Limited Dark Red Bulk, a real winner, especially for beginners and lovers of sweeter, mild tobacco!
Very good, one of my favorites so far. I am new to pipes, been smoking for about 3 weeks now. Been sampling a lot of bulk brands, some standard pouches, (Captain black regular and Cherry). I think this is my favorite so far. Lights easily, very smooth, very mild, no bite at all. Very nice flavor, on the sweeter side. Great room note! MY NEW FAVORITE!! Will definitely be loading up on this one. Have tried 1Q and other "favorite" blends, and have to admit, I do not like them, not sweet at all, almost a little harsh tasting. Lane BCA was good for me also, smooth, mild. If you enjoy a milder, smooth, sweet cherry flavored tobacco, you will love this one! Try it for yourself, order an oz to try, you will agree with me. I do like this site also, been very good so far, have place about 4 orders. Only thing I don't like, a lot of items "out of stock" or "back-ordered", surprising for a large site like this one. But I will continue with them, been happy so far.

Better than Lane Limited Black Raspberry.
I was smoking Lane Black Raspberry for it's mildness but I gave Dark Red a try due to all of the compliments that it got. I agree that Dark Red is not only mild but has a great flavor and my wife likes it better than Black Raspberry. So I have made it my go to tobacco.

Dark Red
Dreadful. Chock full of saccharin or some artificial awful something. No cherry to speak of. I don't like straight black cavendish so take that into account.
3 out of 5
Not For Me
Maybe its me but all I'm getting is a taste of chemicals from this. Theres no bite but I do think that there are alot of better aromatics out there

Some sort of indistinct cherry "something". Not bad though.

Pleasing Taste !! !!
Got a four ounce little bag to sample. Nasty Winter weather finally backed off for 2-3 days so I could go outside and give this a try. Really like the cut and texture of this tobacco, thicker-chunkier than so many others. Taste is what I would expect of an aromatic of this type and I find it quite Likeable. Some ' drying out ' time prior to smoking is somewhat beneficial. Will most likely buy some more of this Dark Red Lane stuff.

Highly recommended
Highly recommended. Great taste and room note. Will order again. Not disappointed at all.

OK
This tobacco is ok with decent flavor.I found it a bit moist and a little difficult to keep lit.I would not smoke this every day but it is nice to have some on hand.May try other brands in the future.

Won't buy again
I'm an aeromatic smoker; Creme Brûlée, Molte Dolce, ect. To me Dark Red has no flavor at all. Occasionally a faint tinge of something comes through for a second, and seldom at that. It has all the other smoking qualities of a good tobacco except any flavor at all.
5 out of 5
Very Enjoyable
Have gone through almost 12 ounces of this new Lane offering, I like the light cherry taste and hint of vanilla. Has become one of my favorites.

It's alright but I still kike my old tobacco better.
It's moist and fresh but the flavor lacks something.

Give this a shot.
WOW! Loaded this up and I was incredibly surprised how fantastic this is! Like CULT Blood Red Moon? Give this a try I think I like it better. A++++++++++

Not Impressed
I am not impressed. The ad man who wrote about this tobacco described this tobacco so vividly my mouth watered: confectioners flavors, cherries, etc.. But, what I tasted was an average black cavendish with a barely discernible flavor. I wondered about the room note, so, I asked my wife. She said, "It's alright. What's it suppose to smell like?" If you improve it, let me know and I will try it again. But, as it stands right now, I will probably not buy it again.

Good Enough for Aro Smokers!
In trying to broaden my tastes from aro tobaccos, I thought I’d try this new blend from Lane—there had been a lot of favorable comments about this blend in the pipers forums that I frequent. I’m happy to say this is a pleasant, mild, and flavorful tobacco, one that I can easily recommend to any piper who wants to try something different but won’t burn his tongue off. Mellow, both in taste and room note, this offering by Lane will pleasantly surprise you if you are not usually a fan of non-aromatic tobaccos in your pipe.

Delicious aroma with a taste that matches. Packs well and burns even with no bite.

Lane Dark Red, light cherry & vanilla, a little bite.
I picked up some of the Lane Dark Red to give it a try as I love Lane BCA every day. The Dark Red is a light cherry/vanilla cavendish, so it's an aromatic and it burns a bit hot and has a hint of bite, not like BCA that is cool to burn and no bite (which is why it's my every day). I generally enjoyed the Dark Red as an alternative here and there when I want something a bit more strong flavored and it's a good smoke, I enjoy it as a small bowl for a short 10 minute smoke, compared to my large bowls of BCA that last upwards of 30+ minutes. I'd try it again. It's less cherry than some of the others, which I appreciate, as too much cherry is overpowering and is like candy. Dark Red is a more hint of cherry and vanilla, more subtle, less overpowering.

Great smoke!!
This Lane tobacco is a really smooth smoke with very fruity notes. I highly enjoy it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing tasteful bowl.

Light Cherry with a heavy cream
So long as you dont smoke this stuff fast it has a very good experience all the way through. I was expecting a stronger cherry, but its more on the smooth side then anything else. It burns cool and should not be smoke in anything you want to smoke something else in because it will ghost your pipe. I had a pipe I used for smoking P&C's Best of the Rest so i was good. Over all if your looking for a smooth creamy kinda feel withva touch of cherry then this would be your best bet.

Lane Dark Red
The perfect 'pouch' tobacco. I like variety and have a couple of different ones every day but there is always one tobacco that you go to for most pipe loads. This is it for me.

Very aromatic and tasty. It is identical in taste to CAO Black whixh is also made by Lane Ltd.

If you like BCA, you might enjoy this
Dark Red is a unique tobacco that I think those who like BCA will enjoy. It has darker notes, for sure. The pouch notes are of stewed stone fruit. To my nose it is a pleasant smell, but not as sweet as BCA. It was the proper moisture out of the bag and easily takes a light. The room note I'm told is nice. Although it is not something I'd have in my regular rotation, there are those that should like it.

Very good cherry pipe tobacco for the beginner and experienced smoker alike.
Very good cherry pipe tobacco for the beginner and experienced smoker alike. May 21, 2016 “Well I just got back to smoking a pipe after about 30 years. I've been smoking cigars and a pipe equally for a long time. But when I became a homeowner with chores a pipe was just a bit too much work. Nice thing about a pipe is you can smoke a bowl in less time than most cigars. This was one of 4 choices I made in bulk. It is a winner. Cherry flavor not overpowering and little to no bite. Finish is a little less smooth and I mean a VERY little. I will be buying more of this in the future.”

Average - Great Copy of Captain Black white package.
It's an average smoke. I can't detect any cherry aroma or taste. It is an exact duplicate of Captain Black White package.

Pleasant surprise.
I am a big fan of Lane 1-Q so I thought I would try this as well. It is a subtle tobacco with a surprisingly rich flavor. I will keep some around.

Lane Dark Red is Excellant!!!
Lane Dark Red is my Favorite pipe tobacco!!! I love it!!! Cooln smooth....No bite and No burn. Great Taste and people tell me all the time how good it smells. Great price too!!

A little flavor over load for my taste buds
Flavor is a 4, tobacco quality is a 2, smoking is a 3. I would smoke this again if it was free, and even buy some more if it was the only product available. Other than that it's not going in my re-order cart. I'm not an authority on aromatics and this is not a tobacco I would rave about. It's good, don't get me wrong, just not my style.
5 out of 5
Absolutely amazing blend you have to try!!!!
I can't get over the way this tobacco smells in the bag... it is unbelievable! This is an all-around excellent blend. There is no bite, a wonderful room note enjoyable for everyone, and a sweet subtle taste that makes for a pleasant smoke anytime of day! If you enjoy aromatics and have not tried Lane's Dark Red, you don't know what you're missing.

I love the Lane products
I especially enjoy the lane bulk black raspberry. The dark red was just as good!

My only complaint....
My only complaint is that I only ordered one ounce to try it out. This is a great black cavendish. The tobacco is similar to another one of my fav's - BCA. But Dark Red isn't as heavily cased as BCA and still has a fantastic taste and room note. Cherry and Vanilla together - a dream come true! Lites and burns well and it's a real wife-pleaser! Property tax is due this month, so I will have to make my one-ounce stretch until next month when I have tobacco money again!

great choice. I enjoy this pleasant blend in the evening. A great front porch smoke. Smooth with no bite.

Domenick's Opinion
It seemed to me to be nothing more than Capt. Black Dark with a flavoring added. I don;t like flavorings in my tobacco so I didn't care for it. Capt. Black Dark is a great tobacco. Leave it alone.

A beautiful blend
It's a great blend with a wonderful flavor and aroma. Excellent!

Lane Dark Red a blender for me
I bought 16oz and after about a month with it, I am not going to smoke it out of the bag but use it in place of BCA for a Cherry Blend I do with other brighter and more distinct Cherries, and that is working for me. The Cav toby itself is a smooth, stay lit, NO BITE SMOKE, so no faulting the baccy itself ... the hint of caramel vanilla is good, but just not very cherry (no pun intended).
5 out of 5
Excellent in all ways!
Excellent in all ways! Note is fantastic, NO bite at all! And VERY tasty!... With the exception of Officers Club, this is better than any of the premium tobaccos that I have tried...
4 out of 5
interesting blend
Another Lane classic. This one reminds me of dark cherries. It also has what seems like a slight caramel taste. A warm rich blend with an excellent room note. Quite damp at the outset I found and needs to be dried out somewhat.

Reaal nice smoke
This was a real nice smoke. I shared it with a friend and because I liked both of them so much, I left him the jar knowing I'll replace it soon.

2nd favorite cherry blend
I was not impressed with the first two bowls. I really like Cult Blood Red Moon so I was comparing it to that. I don't know what changed, but the third, and fourth bowls were great. I still prefer BRM, but this is my second favorite cherry blend. It goes well with a dark roast coffee.
5 out of 5
full cherry flavor.
I have tried a lot of different cherry blends looking for the right one, and i thought cult cherry was going to be my favorite, but i think this is even better, full cherry flavor, not to harsh, stays lit and slow burn.

Tasted bland. I smoke mostly McClelland 620 (Mocha black) and thought the dark red would have more flavor.

Its Worthy To Have In Ones Rotation
Yet another Maraschino cherry fragrance out of the bag with maybe a hint of liquorice which some what reminds me of the old Teaberry gum. I get a bit of this fruity liquorice flavor while smoking it but not overpowering but does leave a nice room note. An easy cavendish tobacco to keep lit with plenty of smoke for an enjoyable hour of time. Two more points specifically about this tobacco that i like. NO TONGUE BITE ! Any tobacco that gives me no tongue bite is worthy enough to be in my rotation and second, I get no stinging sensation when smoking this blend and drinking soda at that same time. I happen to enjoy drinking soda (pop) with some of my other tobacco brands even though the acidity in the soda and what ever is in the tobacco gently stings my tongue but with this lane Dark Red strangely enough did not give off any stinging sensation. Now maybe it was just me but i did pick up on this right away. Now i can enjoy this blend with a "pop" as we say here in the north east.

Good smoke for a new pipe smoker. Can't speak for the experienced as I am new myself.
I am a new pipe smoker and still venturing in the tobaccos. I have tried mainly my local B&M blends and this is my first venture into Lane Ltd tobaccos. First thoughts were great. It was smooth and tasted good. Never got too hot and was a pleasant smoke. Still developing a palate for tobaccos so take this as you will but I think you cannot go wrong with this as a New pipe smoker. Glad I ordered 4 oz and will likely be coming back for more when that runs out.

Very Balanced
I got hold of an ounce of this and it is a very good tobacco. The flavor was very noticeable even to me who after 60 years of smoking can hardly taste anything. At the same time it was strong enough to be enjoyable smoking wise. Even if you are a mostly Balkan/English smoker like me this a very enjoyable change of pace w/o the moaning about it smelling like a campfire or cough syrup.

Great smoke
Just received mine today. It was a great smoke. The cherry flavor is not overwhelming, a great balance with the vanilla. I will definitely buy more.
3 out of 5
Cool smoking, but nothing to write home about
Lane Dark Red is a cool smoking blend, but to me it has medicine like after taste. All in all this tobacco is not my thing, I would guess the 8 oz I purchased are going to be around for a good long while.
5 out of 5
Great tasting tobacco!
Lovely sweet cherry flavor but not overpowering. Great aroma. Sweet and satisfying. A bit moist so I dry it out just a bit. Will definitely be back for more.
2 out of 5
Buy BCA
Everything good but the flavor. This stuff is flat. The flavor needs to amped up. You can tell it's cherry vanilla but when you smoke it the flavor disappears completely. Might work as blender to tone down or smooth out other tobaccos. Will just by BCA to start with from now on.
5 out of 5
Great
Love this tobacco. If you enjoy aromatics and have a sweet tooth you will love this. No bite at all, re-lite only once. Only thing I noticed that was a bit odd it tastes much better then it smells in the package, I probably would not have bought it if I had just smelled it first in a shop.
4 out of 5
Another winning blend from Lane!
Haven't smoked anything cherry, in forever. Bought 8oz, wish I'd bought a pound. If you think dark chocolate, and cherry are a good combo, you're going to love this! Lane, great job! Pleases the sometimes sweet tooth, without being a gooper, and 3 bowls, back, to back, to back, and no tongue bite!
4 out of 5
Great straight or for blending!
Quite tasty, mild and smooth with a cool burn. This will work great for mixing into a blend.
5 out of 5
Very Pleased
First impression: Glad I purchased and will likely keep several oz' in my cellar. It's SO smooth I found myself chugging to get more flavor and inadvertently overheated my bowl. It was then I realized my 'Pilot Error' and backed off to sipping. It began to smooth out as I chilled a bit. The flavor is so good, yet subtle and made me want more, thus my aggressive puffing. I like it. Two reasons I'll keep this in stock. 1. I like it as is. 2. I feel this would make a very good add-in or add-into to create a personal blend. Well done, Lane!
5 out of 5
Tasty
I usually don't get aromatics. This one just look so good. Well, it wasn't....it is awesome! It is the coolest smoking I have ever experienced. From the first light to the bottom of the bowl it never loses anything. I only bought 4 oz but I wish I had got a couple pounds.

Awesome blend
I'm a big fan of Captain Black Royal. I may have to rethink this as Lane Dark Red may now be my new favorite.
5 out of 5
Wow!
This blend is very tasty and has provided a consistent, enjoyable smoke, pipe after pipe. It is very cool and easy to keep lit. The room note is most excellent and I will be keeping a stash of it on hand from now on.

Dark Red - a definite home run winner!
Lane has definitely created a winner for me with Dark Red. Already a fan of BCA and 1-Q, I had to try this. Everything in the promotional information is true. This is an amazingly pleasant aromatic that gives off a wonderful room fragrance during the smoking experience and additionally leaves a very pleasant after fragrance. My wife is very happy, as am I! The taste is delightful and the tobacco burns evenly and completely. And, it doesn't burn hot. After purchasing a 2 ounce sample and enjoying it a few times, I immediately order 2 pounds of bulk Dark Red. Dark Red has spoiled me. Now I have to figure out what to do with all my other tobacco.
5 out of 5
Creamy Smoke
The best part there's no tongue bite. Cool and very creamy smoke. Must give a try and I am sure you won't say NO to this new blend.
5 out of 5
Good taste and no bite.
This is a great smoke. It has a strong and very pleasing aroma of vanilla, a mild and satisfying taste, and no bite. It burns very well. I purchased two ounces and ordered more of it the day I received my first order. A superb tobacco for those just starting pipe smoking or those who smoke infrequently as well as veteran smokers.
5 out of 5
Good smoke
Similar to Black Cordial, but much more of a smooth flavor with no bite. Making this my go to tobacco. First bought the 1oz, but now I plan on buying the big bag.

Lane's Dark Red Ripe Cherry
I have Lane's Very Cherry, Capt Black Cherry, Gawith-Hoggarth Top Black Cherry and now Lane's Dark Red. I even like Cherry Pie, so you get the point. I love a good cavendish, and this is a nice smooth smoking toby with a darker, riper black cherry flavor and note, which is very influence by the caramel and vanilla, and which which reminds me of when were were kids and "pulled taffy" for my mom in the kitchen lol! I am not giving up my Very Cherry or Capt Black's for it, but when i want a piece of Cherry Taffy ... U BET YA! Or I could even mix it with somethin' because cherry blend well with each other according to what you have a taste for ... so play with it.
5 out of 5
Delicious!
Very smooth rich cherry flavor, with an amazing room note. By far the best cherry pipe tobacco I have smoked yet. I will be ordering this in bulk on my next order.
5 out of 5
Awesome! Try it!
This is truly awesome! I'm too much of a newbie to write a sophisticated review, but I know this is a great one. Lane Limited gave me a sample of this at the Raleigh Pipe Show... Thanks, Lane, for the sample and for creating this great blend!
